Location & Description
Longacre enjoys a quiet position on the outskirts of the highly regarded village of Colwall, which is situated at the foot of the western slopes of the Malvern Hills. Colwall boasts a wide range of facilities including a general store and Post Office, a library with internet facilities, excellent schools in both state and private sectors, a Doctor's surgery, chemist, two cafés, public houses and even a hotel. In the centre of the village less than half a mile away there is a mainline railway station providing direct access to London Paddington, Birmingham, Hereford and South Wales. There is also a local bus service to Ledbury and Malvern. A more comprehensive choice of amenities is provided by Great Malvern (three miles), Ledbury (four miles) and the cities of Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester all of which are within easy reach. The M50 motorway is only about six miles away just beyond Ledbury.
Originally constructed in 1928 by local builders W James, Longacre is an exceptionally well presented detached house occupying an enviable position in the sought after village of Colwall. The property has recently undergone a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment to include cavity wall insulation, rewiring, new efficient gas central heating system equipped with zone controls, newly fitted kitchen with Corian work surfaces, refitted bathroom, redecorated throughout and new flooring. The extensive improvements have been thoughtfully carried out and blend beautifully with the existing features, resulting in a fine family home. Benefitting from double glazing throughout, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises a large reception hall, cloakroom, drawing room with attractive bay window and feature fireplace, dining room which leads onto a South facing covered verandah, breakfast kitchen with integrated appliances, walk in pantry and useful utility/boot room. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms all of which enjoy a dual aspect, a further bedroom with an adjoining walk in laundry room and a family bathroom. Undoubtedly, one of the great strengths of Longacre is its wonderful setting in approximately 1.9 ACRES of beautifully landscaped gardens. These provide a spectacular backdrop for the house creating interest, variety and colour throughout the seasons. It is the perfect environment to raise young children and to interest even the most keen gardeners. With so much to offer, the agent's strongly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate this truly unique property. The accommodation with approximate dimensions is as follows:
